George Merkel, the police chief in Vergennes and president of the
Vermont Association of Police Chiefs, along with law enforcement
unions in general, confuse violence associated with prohibition ("Police 
debate marijuana legalization at Vt. Law School,"
March 7) with that of the cannabis (marijuana) plant, which is not
rationally known to produce violence. Law enforcement agencies'
gravy train is dependent on perpetuating those types of lies,
half-truths and propaganda regarding the relatively safe
God-given plant.

Truth is, a sane or moral argument to cage responsible adults who use
cannabis doesn't exist.
